Finally a resource for junior high youth to help with sexual pressure
Mary Ronan talks straight and plain. Kids love her, listen to her and respond. Produced especially for 14- and 15-year-olds, these programs help them think through in advance decisions related to sex. This series challenges young people to understand sex as a valuable gift, something special and meaningful and not as a recreational sport.
Special emphasis is given to avoidance of sexual activity before marriage. Mary presents the facts in a straightforward, honest way that teens relate to and respect. She helps them think through the consequences of premarital sex. She shows why it is important to know ahead of time what the decision is, to avoid being “caught up” in emotional circumstances.
Our youth receive false and misleading information about sex from many sources, especially the media. Television and movies give young people a distorted and unhealthy understanding of sex. These programs will help youth understand the beauty, importance, and reasons for Biblical morality.
Mary Ronan, a registered nurse with a specialty in reproductive health, has worked with teens for over 15 years. A gifted communicator, she speaks to thousands of teens and parents every year to help prepare young teens in thinking through major choices they will face, especially those in the area of premarital sex.
The series consists of six 25-minute programs:Making Good Decisions
STD's and Pregnancy
The Reality of Teen Pregnancy
Sexuality as a Gift
Questions and Answers
Included on the DVD in pdf is a 56 page leader's guide with objectives, discussion questions, activities and handouts.

ChristianCinema.com Store asked: Why did you choose this?
Holly S: the interactive audience is 14 year-old boys & girls, so any age within a couple of years on either side of that (12-16 years old) would probably be it's target market, although the info is so good & well-delivered, even adults & parents will benefit from this dvd.
however, since each child's maturity level & exposure (or lack of) to this subject varies widely, i would rather say buy it, preview it & if you don't feel your child is ready for it at 12 put it away for a year or so--it will definitely be a useful resource sometime in the near future & good to have on hand (even if it's lent out to others with teens in the meantime).
it could also be offered to your church's youth group for a teaching resource along the way as well.
a very well-done dvd! Aug 15, 2011
Kofo K: I would say that it depends om the maturity of the twelve to thirteen year olds concerned. It is frank, plain speaking and very informative. I haven't had a chance to use it with that age group but would have with my children if I had it when they were that age. The world we live in today is throwing sex in our faces all the time so children are becoming aware of sex at a younger age. Parents owe it to their children to start within the secure home ebvironment begin to teach their youngsters about their bodies, the fact that their bodies are private and no go areas to others. This i started doing with mine about the age of 3-4. As they get older 10+ we then need to start helping them understand changes in their bodies, caring for their bodies, their bodies being the temple of the Lord therefore drugs, alcohol and sex before marriage defile the temple. by the time they are teenagers we then start talking aboutabstaining, STDs, keeping safe, fleeing all appearances of evil, choosing friends, appropriate dates and "hanging out" venues etc.... As parents we owe it.
I have used the DVD with youth groups, single groups and parents to help them talk to their children about sex as God's gift. All 13year olds would benefit from it but like I say the 12 year olds.... it depends. Aug 15, 2011
sandra s: I do not think so because the young people today are more advance than we were. I think we need to start talking to our kids about sex before they reach the age of twelve. Furthermore, I enjoyed this video because it was clear and precise. It helped the girls who attended the session to make better life choices. Also, there were some twelve and thirteen years old in the video.
Very helpful tool to facilitate discussion about sex. Aug 15, 2011
Holly S: there is some review of the female anatomy as it relates to what she teaches regarding std's & pregnancy, but review of anatomy is not a big feature.
however, the information given throughout the dvd is excellent & very thorough!
her emphasis is on choices & their related consequences, which is so important in satisfying the curiosity factor in teens.
she candidly explores what may be hard about the choice to abstain, but what is at risk (physically, emotionally, spiritually) if one doesn't choose to abstain.
the dvd is interactive with a young teen audience (although the info is definitely interesting & relevant for older teens & adults alike!) where she provides a forum for them to be both honest & relaxed in their feedback.
she's tactful yet so straightforward in her wording of things & from start to finish backs up what she's teaching with what God's Word has to say about it.
i was so impressed with this dvd & felt it was such an effective tool in getting the right message across to young people that i passed it along to our church to work through it with the youth group. Jul 26, 2011
Randell C: Dear Susan, Recently I bought the DVD Sex as God's gift. I can say that this DVD is very informative and full of interactive sessions. This DVD does not contain any pictures of the anatomy as far as I am concern , as a matter of fact we showed some of the sessions in church to our youth group, we are yet to show the other sessions.I do recommend this DVD to you since it will help guide youths to abstain from sex until marriage. Randell Jul 26, 2011
A shopper asked: I am looking for an alternative than my daughter's junior high sex education course. It is a 10 week course but I do not like the content of the course and it is only offered co-ed. I am looking for something similar but with a focus on God for us to watch and go over with at home. Is this series informative enough for sex education? or would you recommend additional material as well? Jul 18, 2012
